biglari says is not true. chicago and san antonio will be the first cities where vending machines will display calories on soda. coke, pepsi and dr. pepper are rolling out the new machines. it's a premptive move. proposed regulations could require all restaunrants and vending machines to post calorie information as early as next year. critics have been raising concerns about sugary drinks and fatty foods. still to come, how to be a go- getter in small business. a popular columnist tells us how to take the reigns on launching a start up. but first, following the money trail. who is spending billions to get their candidate elected? bill moller uncovers the shocking truth, next. ñçbÑ never look a howler monkey in the eye. we built the entire library out of recycled bottles. fried ants are delicious. really. that was a confidence builder. my students actually ended up teaching me. so i learned this dance, let me show you this dance.

, our city's leadership feels the same way. we are today opening the world's first network of shared electric scooters that you can activate with your smart phone and your phone, it's not just a key to the scooters, it's really a key to the city, it brings everything in the city closer to you, it opens up new neighborhoods that you may not have gone to before and it makes the places you get to every day more fun to get to. for those of us who ride, life before scoot is sort of like life before mobile phones, once you have a short-cut to anywhere in the city in your pocket, you don't really want to go back, so we give you scoot, the world's first network of shared electric scooters and the perfect mode of transportation for the city that leads the world in what's coming next. thank you.

. so the question is, is this a good deal for the city. the first question that comes up, to be honest, goes to the last point -- last couple of points that mr. rose made. this company bought this for $21 million. over the course of a 20-year lease we will pay about $70 million in rent. even if we hadn't just spnt the $21 million, if we had financed that purchase, you are talking about paying $34 million to actually own the property and have that asset. instead, we are talking about spending $70 million in rent. after 20 years we're not going to own that property. so what happened here in terms of, you know, managing the writer's money. you and i have had the conversation, the challenges the mta has had to en counter the last few years. the county transportation gave the mta * $7 million because there was a shortfall in the budget so that, you know, we could lessen the impact of the service cuts that had to be made by the mta. and yet we have a situation that we could have bought this property for $21 million. maybe as high as $34. why didn't that happen? >> okay. thank you, supervisor
